A talented Le Mars team swept Cherokee 3-0 in Lakes Conference volleyball action here Tuesday night, claiming game scores of 25-14, 25-10, 25-16.

Maddy Woodall paced the Cherokee servers with a 9-10 effort and two aces, followed by Alexia Gerdes and Kaely Hummel each 7-7, Megan Hummel 6-7, Emily Haselhoff 4-4, Sammy Hirschman 3-3, and Sara Ramirez 2-2.

Kaely Hummel led the Cherokee girls in hitting with 13-17 and seven kills, while Megan Hummel was 10-13 and six kills, Brookelyn Hoeppner 10-14 and four kills, Gerdes 9-17 and four kills, Ariana Smith 5-8 and one kill, and Woodall 3-3 and one kill.

Haselhoff registered 10 digs to lead that department, while Megan Hummel tallied nine, and Kaely Hummel eight.

Woodall also posted a solid 62-67 setting effort with 16 set assists.

"Lemars is a very good team that is rated #15 in 4A," noted Cherokee coach Julie Hummel. "They have big hitters and big blockers and ran a quick attack that kept our blockers off balance. We made some mistakes in hitting and blocking tonight but our team never gave up.

"We need to work on mixing up our sets and we need to run more quicks and shoots to speed up our offense. We will continue working on these skills."

Cherokee hosts Estherville-LC in further Lakes Conference action Tuesday night.
